Review Policy and Contact

I am currently accepting Adult, Young Adult, and New Adult books for review. You can contact me at readingsherlock@gmail.com . Please contact me with information about the book before attempting to send a copy to me (you can use the server below). My stats are also down below after all of this.

I accept print ARCs, finished copies, e-books, self-published books, indie press books, and audiobooks that fit the genres list below. If the book is a part of a series, then I may need the previous books. For audiobooks there will be two reviews: one for the story, and another reviewing the reader/audio performance.

#OWNVOICES books are something I will almost always accept immediately.

Genres I am intrested:
  • Fantasy
  • Historical fiction and select historical non-fiction
  • Fairy tale/myth retellings
  • Paranormal
  • Mystery
  • Non-fiction
  • Romance
  • Contemporary
  • “Issues” books
  • Extremely political or “hot button” topics
  • Poetry
  • Short story compilations

I am NOT accepting books in the following genres:

  • Memoirs/modern biographies
  • Free verse novel
  • Overtly preachy religious fiction

Accepting Books

I will try my best to review the book as quick as possible but due to school and work I have to schedule writing the reviews. So I prefer to receive a book 3-4 months prior to when you would like the review posted.

Reviews

I link my reviews from twitter, instagram, and goodreads so a varied audience is assured. I will write a review for almost every book I finish. My reviews are written in a relaxed manner reminiscent of a conversation among friends. They are my views of the book and I will express how I felt as I read the book.

I don’t hold back what I think and you will get an honest opinion of what I think. It is rare for me to hate a book, so only extreme cases get my hard opinion.

Review Structure

All reviews will include the following:

  • Cover art
  • Book stats:
    • Title
    • Author
    • Page count
    • Synopsis
  • Star rating
  • Where I received the book from
  • My review: A thorough explanation for the rating

Star Rating: Is found here

After the review: I normally give my physical arcs received to other marginalized reviewers after giving a review. Especially to young teen bloggers who do not have the same chances or abilities to get books. I if the book contains a aspect that I can not relate to my own life I will give my review but will always link to bloggers who know more about the subject in case the reader wants some more depth about the representation.
